Lee Min-jung and Joo Sang-wook reunite for new SBS drama
I just got unnecessarily excited upon first hearing that Lee Min-jung (Come Back, Ajusshi) and Joo Sang-wook (Fantastic) are reteaming to play another dramaland couple for a show titled Fate and Wrath, because they were so charming and sweet in Sly and Single Again. In that drama, they played an adorable couple that was married, divorced, and then fell in love again. But before we get too attached: This new project is a weekend SBS drama described as a “conventional melodrama” — so, big on the dramatics and high-running emotions. Sorry to jerk around your emotions like that!
Fate and Wrath centers around four people who become entangled in a fateful love and an intertwined wrath, creating a trap that becomes impossible to escape. The drama purports to be a “strong melodrama” that depicts their heartbreaking love with a realistic lens. We don’t have much else to go on, but the series will be produced by the company that produced the quintessential makjang melodrama Wife’s Temptation, as well as Lovers in Paris and Family Honor.
I’m a bit sad that we won’t get to see Lee Min-jung and Joo Sang-wook being cute and happy again (look at how much fun they had in Sly and Single Again!) but I do admit to having a soft spot in my heart for reunited couples, whether in storylines or behind the scenes. Fate and Wrath will be a 20-episode series to premiere in November.
